Los Colores

We have been working hard on learning our colors in Spanish. We played a very cool game to help us practice today during our Spanish class. Click on the picture below to check it out for yourself. If you'd like to learn more about what we are studying during our Spanish time, check out this link on the district website.
Have fun playing the color game!

Busy week!

Organisms

How are plants and animals different? 

As we watch the videos, think about how plants and animals are the same and different.

Goodbye balls, hello organisms

We've finished up with our balls and ramps unit and had our final and official ball rolling competition. We've done a variety of these over the past weeks but today was winner take all. 

We've learned much about energy, work, pushes and pulls, gravity, friction and momentum.

Our science focus will be switching over to organisms for the next month. We'll be welcoming some very special critters into our classroom as we learn about and study various organisms. We'll be building 2 different habitats- an woodland terrarium and an aquarium as well. This is a usually a first grade favorite unit and I'm sure you'll begin to hear your child talk about many of our adventures!

Making 10 Math Strategy

We are moving on to Module 9 in math and will be working more with addition equations and inequalities as well as learning about the fraction one-fourth.

We are continuing to work on strengthening the strategy of Making 10 to become more efficient with our math fact fluency. Here is a quick and easy game you can print off and play with your child. All you will need is a die and a 20 small items that you can use as game markers (pennies and dimes would work wonderfully)

Click on the picture or the link below to go to Donna Boucher's blog, "Math Coach's' Corner" to print off a copy.

Don't forget about Parent-Teacher conferences this week. If you've not yet signed up, be sure to log on to Skyward to find a time that may work for you. I'm looking forward to chatting with you about the growth your child has made this year!
